Using Arm and Hammer Baking Soda

More today about Arm and Hammer Baking Soda as part of the Switch & Save Challenge.

My mom has often talked about her mother’s kitchen in the 1950′s, how cheerful and sparkling clean it was.  She had yellow wallpaper with cherries and a big table where she would line up her canning jars to cool in late summer and fall.

Growing up, my mother’s family never had a lot of money.  My mom was one of eight children, so being resourceful was essential.

My grandmother used baking soda as an all purpose product… from scrubbing sinks to brushing teeth and soothing bee stings.

I find it ironic that despite all the fancy products that have been created since the 50′s, I’m happiest using the same product my grandmother loved.

If any of my kids get a sting from a hornet, the first thing I do is mix up a thick paste using baking soda and a little cold water then pack it on the sting.  It provides almost immediate relief from the pain.

Baking soda still does an amazing job scrubbing a sink, or cleaning a dirty pan without scratching.  But, just like for my grandma, the low cost is also a big motivator in today’s tough economy.

Since I use so much of it, I buy baking soda in a large bag from my favorite warehouse store.  It’s a good bargain and very convenient.  You can also print great coupons at Arm and Hammer’s website by clicking here.

  • I didn’t know that about using it for bee stings! I’ll have to remember that one :)

  • Thanks for the bee sting tip!

  • Stacy:

    Thank you for the tips!
    For bee stings, we rub a penny on them, or chew up a plantain leaf (weed common in our yards) and apply it to the bite…

  • Iam so tired of people using chemicals to kill weeds in their yards, when they can use baking soda. It is safe to use and it kills unwanted weeds. Chemicals go into our drinking water and our waterways into the ocean and kill marine life and make them unsafe to eat. We need to do something to help our earth and make it better for all of us. Thank You for letting me vent my concerns.
